Was lucky enough to be dropped off by dinghy to this private stretch of beach after doing a Kicker Rock boat tour. It's a really stunning stretch of white sands and gloriously clear water. Was able to watch the sea lions up close as well as see a pelican catch an iguana and go off with it and also the blue footed boobies spear diving into the water. Amazing.

This was our first attempt to find some of the huge land tortoises we had read about for so many years. Sad to say, after a long hike (extremely hot and sweaty) over some very rough terrine, we discovered only two small females on the paths. The area is very dry and full of brush. There are some birds to ad mier, but not many.

The beach is absolutely beautiful. The white sand is soft and the surf is fun for swimming. There is absolutely NO SHELTER on the beach and the sun is very hot--sun screen is essential. The good news is that there are no fly on this beach--the same is bt true on other beaches! They can be nasty! They really do draw blood upon biting!

After the long walk, the water is really refreshing.

Just came as part of 360 tour. Just brief visit to admire the volcanic rock formation. Just stop to take pictures from the boat to watch mainly birds – boobies, frigates, pelicans and also sea lions. Some tours pr private boat can stop at the sandy beach. The rock and tunnel in it is in line with Kick Rocker for nice picture.

Another hike but expect a wet landing from a dingy boat off a ship. Great views for photos with a beach and snorkel to follow.

You can't go wrong with this beach! Soft white powdery sand, beautiful landscape, and seclusion. You will need a boat to get here, and there are no facilities. Sea lions galore that are happy to play around you in the water.

Probably the most beautiful beach I have ever been to. The white sand is so fine and the water so clear.

This is a great spot to frame a shot of kicker rock. So get your camera ready to get a nice picture!

What an outstanding natural feature. The tall section of rock is known as "Darwin's Pantaloons" - awesome to see in passing. No actual water time available that I could see.

We took a dinghy ride around the cliffs of Cerro Brujo and thought the rock formations and blue footed boobies were really beautiful. We also stopped at a nearby beach for snorkeling. On the day we were there, there were many blue-footed boobies feeding and also a large number of pelicans. The beach was small but one of the most beautiful ones we visited. We also saw small sharks in the surf. The snorkeling was great and included many fish and even some eels. Of course, this may vary from day to day, but I really enjoyed my time here.

We stopped at Cerro Brujo as a part of our snorkeling excursion to Kicker Rock, and we were so excited when we found that out, as not all excursions do and we had heard great things! Cerro Brujo lived up to its reputation; it has beautiful blue water with great snorkeling in patches of sea plants and coral that are only 3 feet deep. It was a great place to get comfortable with the snorkeling gear prior to Kicker Rock! There were also a lot of playful baby sea lions as well as our first (and only) blue footed booby spotting! Definitely recommend if you can loop this in with an excursion, as it does take about 2 hours by boat to get to from Puerto Baquerizo!
